    Joy Hollingsworth
    guard, women’s basketball
    Wildcat: What’s your all-time favorite holiday present?
    Hollingsworth: My parents were too cheap to get wrapped presents, so they put our presents in a pillowcase. They gave us a bunch of toys. I got a Hot Wheels car wash like five years ago, and I’m 22, but that was still my favorite gift.

    W: What’s your best holiday memory?
    H: When my grandma drank a lot of wine at Christmas. She started telling us all of the family business. She told us this stuff about my dad and how bad he was growing up and funny stories about my grandfather. It was really funny. There were a lot of stories.

    W: What do you want this year?
    H: This year I want a Tickle Me Elmo TMX.


    Nick Folk

    Wildcat: What’s your all-time favorite holiday present?
    Folk: A flat-screen TV, a plasma screen. My mom got it for me just a few weeks ago, an early Christmas present.

    W: What’s your best holiday memory?
    F: Just being with the family all the time and hanging out with them. We always go up to Magic Mountain in California and go skiing and snowboarding.

    W: What do you want this year?
    F: I already got everything I wanted this year, because my family asked what I wanted and I told them and they got it done. My grandparents got my letterman jacket and my letter framed, so I already got that.

    W: What’s your best holiday memory?
